Aliens invade Year 5

Year 5 have been busy creating aliens!  In English Language work we created an alien from out own special planet.  We wrote about him or her and then we drew what we thought it would look like in out Sketch book.  Then we set about creating the alien in sculpture in Art using recycled products – newspaper, very kindly cut up for us by Mrs Barnes who supported us throughout, and some old flour of Mrs Westlake’s mixed with water.  This was used to cover a water bottle that had chippings inside to stop it falling over!

Next the shapes were painted and had decoration or features added again with recycled products.  Even Mrs Westlake had a go at making her character Mauveine from Planet Purple – guess which one she made!

They look amazing!!  See for yourself!

Children in Need 2014 Plant mewn Angen

On Friday, 14th November we all dressed up as a Hero or Superhero to raise money for Children in Need.  There were all kinds of hero represented from the people in the emergency services to family members much admired by the children to fantasy superheroes.  The children and staff had great fun admiring the costumes in assembly in the morning before we had a visitor through the door.  Pudsey Bear came with DJ Tomo from Radio Cymru!!!!  Some of the children were interviewed and then Pudsey came into the hall to say hello!!  It was so exciting!

We were able to hear the recording of the interview later in Stars Assembly which was brilliant.  The Name the Bear competition was drawn too with the winner from Year 6 who picked Ieauan as the Bear’s name.

On Tuesday we sent the entries into the Blue Peter decorate some hero pants competition – they had 6,000 entries!

We managed to raise over £300 from our donations and the Naming the Bear competition which was fantastic. A huge ‘Thank you’ to everyone who took part and all their family and carers who helped to get their costumes ready.

Here are some of the photographs taken on the day.
